A Vinyl Wall Cling out of a Digi!

Well it's a brand new week (yay!), and also the last day of the month,
so if you haven't entered in our monthly challenge yet,
today's the last day to get them in!  *Ü*

If you missed yesterday's post, I showed a brand new digi set called "Wedding Day" (as well as some pretty paper packs!)  Well, I just have to show you what one of my Guest Designers did with one of the digis from that set!! Kelly Little used her Silouette to cut out the verse from vinyl and put on her wall just above her kitchen entry way.  Take a look!


How neat is that?!!  Lovely Kelly *Ü* 
 Please check out her blog post about this and you'll get some other "treats" as well *Ü*

So many things you can do with digi stamps.  What can YOU imagine?

A Wedding Day New Release

Hi there *Ü*  Did you know that in the U.S. the most popular month to be wed is June?  Following closely behind is August and then May, July etc....  Just a li'l trivia for ya *Ü*   Thanks to my DT member, Tania who requested a wedding couple or cake, I created this set "Wedding Day."  It's perfect for creating a handmade card for the Bride & Groom... or even for an Anniversary!

Also available now in the store are 3 new digi paper packs (shown below).  Take a peek at what 3 DT members created with this lovely set!





And here are some beautiful digi paper packs...




Have a wonderful & blessed weekend!

Freebies - BCA Floral Cross

Yes, we have some free digis for you today!!  On the 25th of each month, McMahon Five Designs releases a new free digi for Breast Cancer Awareness. Even though our Mission is Breast Cancer Awareness, the images can be used for many other cancers and diseases.  In fact,  March is National Multiple Myeloma Awareness month (burgundy ribbon) .  You can find a list of awarenesses for the month on the M5D Blog today.

Some of you may know that our own Design Team member, Barb is a stem cell transplant recipient due to Multiple Myeloma.  Here's what Barb had to share about this disease...

MM is a blood cancer that is in the Leukemia family, however there is no cure. It can be controlled for a time. MM is cancer of the bone marrow. It causes lesions in the bones and makes the bones very brittle with the possibility of crumbling from a fall. Many people who suffer from this cancer, (including myself) have had back, ribs, femur and head lesions which cause a lot of pain! One course of action to stave off the possibility of immediate death is to have a stem cell transplant. In order to do this, we must have all of our white blood cells removed and frozen until the day of transplant. To get ready for the transplant, We are given very high doses of chemo therapy for a couple of days prior. This chemo wreaks havoc on our bodies with side effects that NEVER go away! I am telling you all of this because I want more people to be aware of this horrible disease!

I did have the stem cell transplant, in fact, I had what they call tandem transplants which are done within 3 months of each other! There is not enough time to recuperate from the first when you are getting the second! The only reason that I had the tandem is because I was in a clinical trial and that was part of my arm of the trial. The others only had to have a single transplant! (Lucky them!) My original diagnosis was pretty far advanced. 80% of my body was infiltrated with these nasty cancer cells. I was originally given 7 months. They said that with a transplant, I might be able to get 7 years. I chose the 7 years! Anyway, I am in remission right now (praise God) and I plan on staying there for a while! Each day is a gift and I just have to wait and see what my future holds.
Thank you so much.

We're certainly very blessed to have Barb with us today & her story is a great reminder to us all that each day is God's gift to us (and what we do with it is our gift to God!)

Here is the ribbon freebie that Sue drew up for April...

 "FLORAL CROSS"

My grandmother had Breast Cancer and so did a good family friend who was like a 2nd mom to my girls, so I chose to make this card using a pink ribbon.

The background paper I used is one of 3 that I created and I'm making them available to all you FREE!



Here's a Blinky for your sidebar to remind you about the Ribbon Freebies - 25th of each month at McMahon Five Designs :)

Saturday's Inspiration

Happy Saturday, and happy Spring!!
 
Today I have more scrapbook pages by Sr. Design Team member, Edwina!!  I just gotta say, if you aren't familiar with Edwina, she is quite the poet!   Sometimes she makes up her own poems, and sometimes she incorporates other well-known quotes/poems.   I always get a kick out of reading them on her handmade projects :)    Check out these fun sayings that she paired with the outline versions of our Birthday Animals digi sets ....







CUTE!!!  Thanks Edwina *Ü*
